Great Horned Owl Up Close

Isn't this Great Horned Owl gorgeous? I took this photo, but it isn't the exact owl nesting in our communications tower. This fellow was at the Pelican Island Wildlife Festival today. All of the wonderful birds on display, including a bald eagle, have been injured and cannot return to the wild.

Several eagles have been found dead this year; one still on her nest. You can't imagine how this hurts my heart.

I doubt that I will ever get a chance to see "our" owl up this close but it was fascinating to see one of the brothers or sisters.

The first booth/table I saw at the festival was this Owl shirt. Of course I HAD to have it!

Also of interest was the Florida Master Naturalist Program. Maybe when we arrive next year I can go to the Center and see if I can complete the program within our Snowbird time line. If only I still had the energy of youth.
